The Richard Jackson Saga
Book 16: First Steps: A Coming of Age in the 1950s an Alternate History told with wit and humor.
Coming of age stories don’t have to be all teenage angst. They can be fun-filled adventures that become more serious with age. With humor, we follow a young man’s coming of age in the late 1950s. Starting in the summer before his freshman year, he goes through high school and beyond. He finds wealth as an inventor and fame in Hollywood as he searches for a girlfriend. Wealth and fame prove far easier than girls.
The Sixteenth Book has Rick continuing to explore the moon and outer space.
Danger, fame and fortune, and adventure seem to be his lot in life. He and his wife are expecting their first child. His continues to effect the world around him in economic, military, and even religious matters. Gravity control opens the moon and the rest of the solar system.

This tongue in cheek saga is all true, give or take a lie or two.
